Mr. Huntington

1841                Rooms at Wheelock’s, Barre, Massachusetts.

Mr. Huntington was recorded in an announcement on July 30, 1841 in the Barre Gazette (Barre, Massachusetts).  Daguerreotype.  Mr. Huntington, who has taken rooms for a few days at Wheelock’s takes miniatures by this wonderful art, in the best style.  We sat a minute and a quarter before the magic box the other day, when he caught us nice as a pin.  The likeness is so perfect as to be universally pronounced that of a remarkably handsome youth—albeit, we would not vouch for its effect on children who might see it.  There is no mistake about the gentleman or his apparatus, and those who wish for their perfect likenesses would do well to give him a call.  N. B. Those so plain that their portraits need flattery, had better not attend, as the apparatus cannot be adapted to such an end.

Mr. Huntington is not recorded A Directory of Massachusetts Photographers 1839-1900 or  in other photographic directories.
